About Murray Bridge
Murray Bridge is a city in the Australian state of South Australia and incorporates the areas of Callington, Jervois, Mypolonga, Wellington and Woods Point. 78 kilometres east-southeast of the state’s capital city, Adelaide, and 77 kilometres north of the town of Meningie.
Located less than an hour from Adelaide, Murray Bridge is a bustling rural town and Murraylands’ largest regional and commercial hub. The Murray River is the lifeblood of the town, generating jobs, tourism, and recreational activities for people of all ages to enjoy.
The surrounding region is filled with picturesque natural landscapes for those who are looking to relax and unwind. Have a picnic on the banks of the Murray River, go fishing, or enjoy one of the spectacular sunsets over the water.
For people looking for a little more excitement, there is an array of water sports, including skiing, kayaking, and jet skiing to be had on the waterway. There is also the wonder of the Monarto Safari Park, Australia’s largest open-range zoo. It’s home to more than 500 animals, including lions, giraffes, and rhinos, who are free to roam amongst their natural safari-style environment.
Come evening, it’s time to take a trip to the outskirts of Murray Bridge. With its low rainfall, clear skies, and little to no light pollution, it’s one of the best spots in South Australia to observe the night sky. Today the city is the centre of a major agricultural district which is driven by dairying, chicken raising, pig breeding, and tomato and snow pea growing.
The main attractions in Murray Bridge include Sturt Reserve, Murray River Cruises, Captain’s Cottage Museum, Golf Course, Ten Pin Bowling, Battlearena Laser Tag, Cameo Cinema, Speedway and Horse racing.
